The hostel is located in "Las Piedras" neighborhood, 2 blocks from Calafate's main avenue. We are 7 minutes walk from downtown.
Our local attraction is Los Glaciares National Park. The National Park is 80 km far from El Calafate...but don't worry you can buy all the tours and transports through our front desk!
We recommend to visit the Moreno glacier with the alternative tour specially formulated to backpackers and nature lovers. The most important glacier to enjoy in second place is the Upsala glacier, if you have enough time you can not miss it!
From our hostel you can also visit the well known chilian National Park "Torres del Paine".
If you're a trekker, you can not miss El Chalten, located in the northern part of the National Park. We have daily bus departures from the hostel without the need to be transported to the bus terminal.
